Do you remember your eating experience from the last few days?
Results from an Ecological Momentary Assessment showed a significant memory-experience gap in remembered eating happiness. While remembered eating happiness was predicted by the worst eating experience, neither the best nor the final eating experience had a significant influence. Findings indicate that, in the domain of eating, retrospective memory is mainly influenced by negative experiences.
